Compatibility and Database Properties

Compatibility and Database Properties

You can configure properties to reinstate previous Informatica behavior or to configure database behavior. To edit the compatibility and database properties, select the PowerCenter Integration Service in the Navigator, and then click the Properties view > Compatibility and Database Properties > Edit.
The following table describes the compatibility and database properties:
Property
Description
PMServer3XCompatibility
Handles Aggregator transformations as it did in version 3.5. The PowerCenter Integration Service treats null values as zeros in aggregate calculations and performs aggregate calculations before flagging records for insert, update, delete, or reject in Update Strategy expressions.
Disable this option to treat null values as NULL and perform aggregate calculations based on the Update Strategy transformation.
This overrides both
Aggregate treat nulls as zero
and
Aggregate treat rows as insert
.
Default is No.
JoinerSourceOrder6xCompatibility
Processes master and detail pipelines sequentially as it did in versions prior to 7.0. The PowerCenter Integration Service processes all data from the master pipeline before it processes the detail pipeline. When the target load order group contains multiple Joiner transformations, the PowerCenter Integration Service processes the detail pipelines sequentially.
The PowerCenter Integration Service fails sessions when the mapping meets any of the following conditions:
  • The mapping contains a multiple input group transformation, such as the Custom transformation. Multiple input group transformations require the PowerCenter Integration Service to read sources concurrently.
  • You configure any Joiner transformation with transaction level transformation scope.
Disable this option to process the master and detail pipelines concurrently.
Default is No.
AggregateTreatNullAsZero
Treats null values as zero in Aggregator transformations.
Disable this option to treat null values as NULL in aggregate calculations.
Default is No.
AggregateTreatRowAsInsert
When enabled, the PowerCenter Integration Service ignores the update strategy of rows when it performs aggregate calculations. This option ignores sorted input option of the Aggregator transformation. When disabled, the PowerCenter Integration Service uses the update strategy of rows when it performs aggregate calculations.
Default is No.
DateHandling40Compatibility
Handles dates as in version 4.0.
Disable this option to handle dates as defined in the current version of PowerCenter.
Date handling significantly improved in version 4.5. Enable this option to revert to version 4.0 behavior.
Default is No.
TreatCHARasCHARonRead
If you have PowerExchange for PeopleSoft, use this option for PeopleSoft sources on Oracle. You cannot, however, use it for PeopleSoft lookup tables on Oracle or PeopleSoft sources on Microsoft SQL Server.
Max Lookup SP DB Connections
Maximum number of connections to a lookup or stored procedure database when you start a session.
If the number of connections needed exceeds this value, session threads must share connections. This can result in decreased performance. If blank, the PowerCenter Integration Service allows an unlimited number of connections to the lookup or stored procedure database.
If the PowerCenter Integration Service allows an unlimited number of connections, but the database user does not have permission for the number of connections required by the session, the session fails.
Minimum value is 0. Default is 0.
Max Sybase Connections
Maximum number of connections to a Sybase ASE database when you start a session. If the number of connections required by the session is greater than this value, the session fails.
Minimum value is 100. Maximum value is 2147483647. Default is 100.
Max MSSQL Connections
Maximum number of connections to a Microsoft SQL Server database when you start a session. If the number of connections required by the session is greater than this value, the session fails.
Minimum value is 100. Maximum value is 2147483647. Default is 100.
NumOfDeadlockRetries
Number of times the PowerCenter Integration Service retries a target write on a database deadlock.
Minimum value is 10. Maximum value is 1,000,000,000.
Default is 10.
DeadlockSleep
Number of seconds before the PowerCenter Integration Service retries a target write on database deadlock. If set to 0 seconds, the PowerCenter Integration Service retries the target write immediately.
Minimum value is 0. Maximum value is 2147483647. Default is 0.
